Particle Mesh - Bluetooth

Is the bluetooth on the Particle Mesh devices only for the particle mesh or is there a timeline to allow the bluetooth capabilities to be accessed by software. There could be a lot of applications for a bluetooth interface. Just a little confused about not having the bluetooth accessible as the modules were described as “Wifi+Mesh+Bluetooth”

I believe this has been asked and answered here: BLE Central Mode


Just wanted to note that Bluetooth isn’t being used for Mesh, but rather Thread, which is a different technology.

Short answer for Bluetooth: currently, not quite available, but definitely will be in the (hopefully nearby) future, as noted in the post linked to by @ninjatill.
